My Motors

Like any young man living in England I wanted a sports car. I was fortunate to be able to buy an MG TA roadster in 1955 while finishing my degree course in London - thanks to parents who had saved some money for me when times were difficult, although I think their ambitions for Philip's future fund did not include sports cars!

Many different sports and other cars were bought, worked on and exchanged for better ones until I was the proud owner of an Austin Healey 3000 Mk III BJ8 which joined me in Tasmania when I moved to Australia with my CSIRO work in 1971.


My 12 years in Papua New Guinea were a fallow period for sports cars but I now have a bright red MGB roadster in the garage for my maturing years.
